Mailhes, René (guitar) - Chtildo

Lägg till önskelista + 159 kr - Utgången

René Mailhes was born in 1935. His uncle, Chaplain Ferré, himself a guitarist, played with Django Reinhardt. Mailhes taught himself guitar and played at the Saint Germain club in Paris. But the need to make living led to him taking to the road as a scrap-metal dealer. René Mailhes came to public notice in the 1950s (see his memorable guitar duo with the brilliant Laro Sollero, who died in 2002), but it was only in 1960, at the age of 25, that he really turned professional. Having decided to break free of the tradition of Django Reinhardt (when, given his origins, this should have come naturally), he forged his own style by listening to his American counterparts (especially Barney Kessel, Jimmy Rainey, Jim Hall and Kenny Burell), while paying close attention to the experiments of the founders of the bebop movement (Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk...) whose lessons he applied with intelligence. Fruitful encounters and multiple experiments helped him develop his art, quickly raising him to the ranks of a master of his instrument, until he finally achieved the status that he has today, a 'guitar legend'. With sensitivity and lyricism, René Mailhes manages to give musical expression to the diversity and depth of his emotions. The melodic beauty of his solos, with their subtle harmonic developments, their moving inflections and, above all, their sensitivity and emotion, form a passionate declaration of love for music.
